Martin’s presentation will start with the early history of this IK Brunel line before taking the audience on a journey from Gloucester to Ross and Hereford – an attractive route which was sadly terminated by Dr.Beeching in 1964. There will also be some observations on the 19th century broad gauge/ standard gauge debate. There will be a very brief glimpse of the line from Ross to Lydbrook, which provided the last freight traffic through Ross, and a few photos of locations along the line as they are today.
